The new 8-Bit video game console was called the Atari 5200 which was originally created to compete with Mattel's successful Intellivision system. The Atari 5200 was based on the Atari 400/800 computer which featured the MOS Technology 6502 CPU so its internal hardware was almost identical. This game system included new features such as four controller ports 5hat would each connect to a Atari's new analog 360 degree joystick (Atari 2600 only had 4 position joysticks) on a long rectangular body with numeric keypads and fire buttons on the top sides. It was also the first system to have an automatic TV switchbox. The system was launched with the games Galaxian and Space Invaded included with the game console. About 69 games were officially released for the Atari 5200 game console.
